Wintery weekends can often leave you feeling penned in with the kids bouncing off the walls!
The RSBP have created a fun reason to wrap up & get outside with the kids this weekend (25-27 Jan) by joining in on their Big Garden Bird Watch. Having an activity like this can help you can keep the kids focused on their task of checking off the birds on their spotters list (& hopefully minimise the moaning), while also getting some fresh air and a bit of a run around.
Why not add to the fun by getting the kids to make their very own pair of special Bird spotting binoculars!
All you'll need is:
2 toilet rolls
An off cut of wrapping paper
Some coloured card
Cut the wrapping paper into a strip that is same height as the toilet rolls & long enough to wrap around them both side by side.
Glue or staple together the toilet rolls then wrap in paper.
Next cut out two wings and a beak. Glue them onto the side & front of the wrapped rolls. Finally glue on a pair of eyes & you're ready to go!
And don't forget to down load a bird spotters pack from the RSBP:
Have a great weekend
